Can iOS widgets show image from URL?

Our county government is publishing a COVID-19 summary each day as an image (JPG) at the same URL:

It occurred to me that this would be good to have as a widget, but I’m not sure if it’s possible for a widget to fetch a live image from a URL. I haven’t been able to find any examples of how to do it, so I’m guessing it might not be possible.

I did put together a Shortcut that does ‘get contents of URL’ followed by a Quick Look, so that’s something at least, but a widget would be preferable, if possible.

Here is one example that may help you
